Le Brassus Carrousel Minute Repeater Flyback Chronograph Red Gold by Blancpain
The "Le Brassus Carrousel Minute Repeater Flyback Chronograph Red Gold" is a watch from Blancpain's "Le Brassus" watch family. The Watch features a dial in openwork with white grand feu enamel outer circle and is encased in a red gold case. This timepiece is a men's watch. The round case is 45mm in diameter, 17.8mm high and waterproofed up to approximately 30 meters water depth (3 bar). The transparent case back makes it possible to admire the movement.
The watch's functions are provided by a hand-wound Blancpain 2358 mechanical movement running with a power reserve of 65 hours and displays for hours and minutes. The movement has the popular chronograph "stopwatch" function to measure the duration of an event. The measured duration can be read with a seconds hand. As one of only very few timepieces, the timepiece features a minute repeater. As regulating organ, the caliber makes use of a flying caroussel, which works very much like a tourbillon, but it was designed to circumvent Breguet's orignal patent. Like a tourbillon, the caroussel lets the balance wheel and the escapement rotate slowly to avoid effects of the watches position and gravity on the time keeping. Today, the complication mostly serves an aethetic and emotional purpose and is a testament of the manufacturer's watchmaking abilities.
The watch comes on a brown alligator leather strap with a red gold folding clasp. Blancpain asks its official retailers to sell the watch at around 426'852 CHF. Use the "Contact Shop" button to reach out to an official store of your choice for their offer."
